You pass through the magnificent gatehouse and sweep up the long drive. Have you been transported back in time? You could be forgiven for thinking so!
Peckforton Castle can make the most important day of your life even more special. Hold your wedding and wedding breakfast in this most breathtaking of venues, revel in the idyllic views of Cheshire. You can even take over the Castle exclusively for the day. The Castle grounds, the red sandstone walls, the marble floors, the vaulted dining rooms and the open fires all make for vibrant photo opportunities.
We host civil ceremonies, and our three licensed rooms can cater for any number of guests from 10 to 170.
Imagine saying your marriage vows with the sun streaming through the stained glass windows, a string quartet in the Minstrel’s Gallery playing soft and beautiful music, the fire glowing in the background and the candlelight reflecting off the original Minton Hollins tiled floor. This magnificent room is the perfect setting for a wedding; it also allows you to make a spectacular entrance since you can come in through the original main entrance to the Castle.
Walk along the red carpet, up the stone staircase and enter this special room. It has two working fireplaces and a vaulted stone ceiling. At the apex of the ceiling you’ll see a carved stone with an inscription of love.
This intimate room is the Castle’s original library and is surrounded by tall, imposing windows.
Built in 1851 and set inside the fortified walls of the Castle, the Chapel is the perfect place for your wedding blessing. Walk up the aisle to the sound of the harp, surrounded by flowers and candles.
